The Dieselgeek sigma 6 short shifter reduces shifter throw and replaces the rubber shifter cable ends with steel spherical bushings. Both side-side and front-back throw distance are reduced and the shifter handle height is not lowered. This enables faster shifting without making the shift lever look stunted. Replacing the stock rubber shifter cable ends with steel bushings also removes most of the play in the shift lever. This doesn't increase or cause any vibration in the shifter handle but does make it feel much more direct!
The sigma 6 kit is for 6 speed manual transmission on 02M/02Q MQ350 transmissions. This is mk5 and newer 6 speed transmissions, and 2000-2013 Audi A3 w/6 speed manual. For support on this topic, please contact Dieselgeek.com or search for more reviews by users in the VW and Audi TDI forum.

As you can see my knob has the chrome trim on it which I like. And wood matches perfectly with the rest of the trim in the SEL.
